It’s perfectly nestled between Moorgate and Liverpool Street in the heart of the financial district where the modish East London begins.

At the deluxe lodging, it’s all about whatever suits your whim. The seasonal menu at South Place Chop House dazzles guests with locally sourced meats and sustainable seafood.

Concierge Juan Manuel Jorquera from Galicia, Spain, mentions the hotel’s prime location and in-house dining options. Both Angler and Chop House are among his favorites, as well as the tropical bar vibe of the Secret Garden lounge, all open to the public.
“Regarding food and drinks, I always advise to visit Broadgate Circle, which is a lovely plaza 2 minutes walking from the hotel, and where you can find different restaurants and different types of cuisine including
Chinese, Spanish, Italian, and French. The atmosphere is especially enjoyable during the Christmas season, but the atmosphere is great at any time,” mentions the insightful advisor.
“Not in Broadgate Circle, but also very well recommended, you have Cinnamon Kitchen or Dishoom (Indian cuisine), Ivy City Garden (British), Gaucho (Argentinian steak house) and last but not least Sushi Samba (Peruvian-Japanese-Brazilian cuisine) and Duck & Waffle (highest 24h. Restaurant in London)” continues the young hospitality gem. All of these options, along with trendy Shoreditch, are walking distance from the hotel.

Catering equally to corporate travelers working in London’s preeminent financial center as well as risqué hipsters who head to stylish 3 South Place bar and grill an inviting space with cowhide armchairs and DJs playing dance and lounge music late into the night.
